Can I ask a serious question about illegal immigrants

Why do so many people have a problem with them? If I am understanding correctly, illegal immigrants can't collect welfare, they don't pay taxes but they work for minimum wage, if that, under the table. So if they paid taxes, most would end up getting MORE back in their refund then they paid in anyway.

I get that the crime rate in the illegal immigrant community is probably higher then in the legal population but other then that, what is the problem?

Many are living in crappy conditions, working crappy jobs, and making the neighborhood area look like shit because they are making so minimal they cant afford anything.

Secondly because they many refuse to learn English.

Third, because there are certain groups of immigrants that take over and become annoying like cockroaches.

They do work crappy jobs usually and therefore don't make much, therefore, any place that they could afford would already be crappy, wouldn't it? I do agree with the learning English part though.

Most illegal aliens use stolen SSNs to get jobs.  They cause a world of grief for those they are stolen from.  This happened to a friend and the illegal alien only made 12k from working a few months during the prior year and it bumped my friend into a new tax bracket causing her to to owe the IRS $15,000.  It took YEARS to straighten out and in the meantime her wages were garnished to pay the taxes.

Also, there are many people who have filled out the paperwork for a visa to immigrate to the US.  They are denied entry because there are so many illegal aliens "cutting in front" of them.  Some I know have waited for 8-10 years and haven't been approved yet because of illegal immigrants who don't care about our laws.  Why should we prioritize a criminal before a law-abiding immigrant who is trying to do things the right way?

Russians do crappy jobs? Like what? What about the Chinese? Or any other, say middle east folks or so forth?

Oh were you speaking of Mexicans from Mexico? Whatever they have no education or skills other than cook.

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

I have a friend at work who is working under an assumed name. I don't ask too much about it. It is strange for me. I know it is wrong, but I can understand why he would rather be here Han Mexico.

If an employer usually pays $7.75 for a position and interviews 4 applicants, and two of them asked to be paid under the table at $4-$5/hr, someone who is NOT an illegal immigrant just lost out. Make sense?

All of this.  Exactly.

I have friends who are engineers with work sponsors who are having all sorts of issues trying to stay in the country they went to school in for high paying jobs that will put a lot of money in the tax system.  They are being put off, having to go back to their home country and reapply, and getting all sorts of runaround because the illegals are cutting in front of them.  The system is punishing those who are using it for what it was intended for.
